It’s the time of year when acorns are just beginning to fall. Right now, in my neighborhood, they’re still green, but before long, they’ll be a luscious brown and ready to gather. Never cooked with acorns? I’m happy to solve that problem for you. With the reprint of my acorn cookbook and field guide, “Acorns and Eat’em”, you’ll find all the directions you need for identifying, leaching and cooking delicious foods with the acorns you gather. Whether it’s acorns in your omelet or acorns in your smoothies, you’ll find a wide variety of recipes. This book is 6X9 inches and will fit well into a large purse, briefcase or backpack. Acorns make every dish more delicious. Just make sure you save plenty for the wildlife! Suellen Ocean is the author of “Acorns and Eat’em”, a how-to vegetarian cookbook and field guide for eating acorns.

That “No Free Lunch” saying isn’t always true, there’s always someone eventually comes along and takes us out to lunch and we treat sometimes too. Those of who love to cook are often providing free lunches but what we receive in return is better than cash. Thanks to the folks at the California Wildlife Foundation, Acorns and Eat’em, a how-to vegetarian cookbook and field guide to eating acorns, is available as a free download. It will explain how to gather, grind and leach acorns and provides many varieties of recipes from burritos to smoothies and has a handy field guide so you can identify your oaks. It’s a lot of fun for nature lovers, kids and school teachers, cub scout leaders etc. Here’s my website and there you’ll see the link for Acorns And Eat’em.
